The LG G smartphone series has defied the logic of what a smartphone should be, and due to the unique features it has become one of the most popular. The two previous releases have been regarded as two of the most innovative smartphones, and the upcoming release looks to be mentioned as the same.
With the expectations that we are sure to see the new LG G Flex 3 in early 2016, we are already hearing talk on what a beast the new phone will be. As LG has already stated they will continue to bring forth new features in each new release, it leaves us much to wonder. With LG stating that a foldable design will be implemented in 2016 we are almost certain that a foldable and flexible display will help lead the new LG G Flex 3 concept.
Telling you all you want to hear and so much more, the following LG G Flex 3 rumors, specs, features, concept, price, presales, and release date details all there is to know.
LG G Flex 3 Rumors
[AdSense-A]Despite all the time left until we believe we will hear the official word on the LG G Flex 3, we are beginning to decipher the many rumors. It’s amazing how much of a craze that one phone can start, and with more than a year left in the making the concept of the phone itself is really starting to take shape.
LG looks to bring forth yet another new unique feature, and why would we think anything less. The two top features of the LG G Flex 2 will make its way to the LG G Flex 3 as the self-healing back and bendable display are both expected. The added bonus coincides with the biggest LG smartphone rumor to date, as we are fully expecting the display to not only bend, but also fold.
The foldable design was first reported by LG in their future smartphone concepts, and the 2016 LG G Flex 3 release is expected to be the first. Just recently we heard about the foldable display, and fitting the concept of larger phones would make this new feature even better.
With rumors that LG will be increasing the display size once again to 6 inches, the foldable design will bring back the compact size that Phablet style phones lack. As consumers look to have something bigger, better, and much more efficient, the many LG G Flex 3 rumors shows that all three can be integrated into the same smartphone concept. There has been some speculation that the foldable design will replace the curved and bendable display all-together, although this is not likely to occur.
If the current LG G Flex 3 rumors remain for the official announcement, we will have to wait until after the New Year. Some have suggested that LG may make an attempt to launch the new Flex right before the holidays to help boost sales, but this will be difficult to say the least. With the long production times expected, we will more than likely have to wait until after the holiday season, and probably sometime in February.
LG G Flex 3 Specs
The LG G Flex 3 specs are already looking beastly as the consistent nature of one of the industry leaders contributes to the speculation. Building upon the changes seen in the LG G Flex 2, we are expecting to see many upgrades including a faster processor, more battery power, more megapixels in both cameras, more memory options, bigger screen, and a 4K display.
One of the biggest rumors points to LG going back to the original screen size of 6 inches. The original Flex had the larger screen display, but the concept of the 2nd Flex brought forth a smaller, but better looking display. Apparently, LG may have figured out how to integrate a 4K display into the larger size as those looking for visual appeal and size may just have both.
Both cameras will likely be getting an upgrade as well. Rumored to feature at least a 17 MP front-facing camera and quite possibly 20 MP, and will work alongside the new 3D camera feature. A 5 Mp rear camera will create some of the best-looking selfie pictures which have slowly become more of a craze for picture lovers.
LG will likely look to a faster processor in the G Flex 3 as the octa-core Snapdragon Qualcomm 2.9 ghz processor is the most likely. Coupled with 4 GB of RAM, the speed and precision will help make the LG G Flex 3 one of the best smartphones for multi-tasking.
A 3800 internal battery round out some of the many LG G Flex 3 specifications that have been rumored. It’s also been rumored that the new release will feature an eye scanner, instead of finger sensing technology.

LG G Flex 3 Features
[AdSense-A]The LG G Flex 3 features are expected to bring forth yet again something new to the smartphone industry. We knew it would only be a matter of time before we seen 3D camera phones, and it appears that the G Flex 3 will be the first.
3D technology has been in place for some time, but up until now it hasn’t made its way to smartphones. The camera has become one of the most important features of any phone, and LG is looking to go all out with the rumors on the LG G Flex 3 3D camera.
Waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof features are all expected to return, as LG is looking to continue its trend of integrating premium features in the G Flex concept. More memory and color options will help give consumers more choices. Expected are 16, 32, 64 and GB internal memory options. Launch day colors including black, blue, silver, and white have also been rumored.
We’re quite certain that there will be a new Android operating system by the time the new Flex 3 releases, but there has been minimal information on what’s expected. Currently, all Android smartphones are running or being upgraded to the Android 5.0 operating system as we are expected a new release before 2016.
LG G Flex 3 Concept
The intentions of keeping up the tradition of something unique are what the LG G Flex 3 concept will be all about. The new foldable design will become the footprint of the new LG G Flex smartphone, and is expected to be another fan favorite. Consistent with what LG has done in the past, the new concept is expected to become synonymous with the new Flex 3.
Another premise of the new concept is to appeal to all types of users while keeping the cost of the phone itself manageable. Some have suggest that high end premium features that will be in the LG G Flex 3 concept are typically reserved for high end devices only, and with the expected price comparable with other standard models will appeal to the majority of users.
LG G Flex 3 Price
There is no doubt that the launch price of the LG G Flex 3 will be higher than the current model, but not as much as you may have thought. When taking into account of the many new features and more consumer choices, some have been predicting a launch day price of $1100 – 1200. We have heard the same speculation, but this goes against what LG is trying to do with the new concept.
It’s highly unlikely that the release date price will be quite that high, but a US price of $1000 is not out of the question. Based on information obtained from our closest sources, we can expect to see a US launch date price of just under $1000. This equates to about 800 Euros and about 635 GBP in the UK.

LG G Flex 3 Presales
[AdSense-A]If all the information above pertaining to the official release date announcement holds-true, then we can expect to see cellular companies starting presales by the 2nd week in February. This has been the case with previous LG G Flex releases, and nothing looks to differ with the 3rd release.
Here in the US, cellular companies typically start advertising smartphone presales right after the phone passes the FCC inspection. If the official announcement does occur during the first week, we can expect that it will go through the FCC by the end of the 2nd week. This would set up the LG G Flex 3 presales starting by the end of the 2nd week to the first part of the third week. Asian markets such as South Korea, China, and Japan should be the first countries featured which will set up presales to start right after the official LG announcement.
We’re expecting T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T to offer presales, and the best launch day prices you will find. Many of us would rather not pay the full-purchase price up front, and when looking at the $100 price tag some may not be able to. The four top US cellular carriers are all expecting to offer monthly payment options with no money down at the time of the presale.
LG G Flex 3 Release Date
Each year it seems as though the expected release is not what it seems. As we look towards the inevitable release we try and try and look at the previous models to determine what’s to be expected. The good thing about the previous releases in the G Flex series is that the LG G Flex 3 release date should be easy to predict.
Consistent with the two previous releases, we are expecting to see the official announcement during the first week in March. Confirming much of what we’ve been speculating will be all the details including spec, features, price, and release date. The official announcement should set up a mid-February launch date in most of Asia including South Korea where it will be introduced first.
In the UK, you should get your first glimpses by the end of the month with much of the rest of Europe seeing it starting during the first week in March. If all of the above remains true, the US release date should also be by the end of February.
